Transferring to Mount Union

I transferred to Mount Union for many reasons but the main one being how at home I felt here on campus. The faculty, staff, and the students are all so welcoming and supportive. I heard about Mount Union from my boyfriend who informed me about the promising academic programs offered here. I chose to attend because upon researching Mount and getting in touch with some faculty, I believed that Mount was the best choice to help me achieve my career goals. My transfer advisor Christian Lopez has had the biggest impact on my UMU experience so far. He has been with me from the very beginning, as far back as me emailing him with questions I had about the university before I even applied to go here. If you need something, he’s there. If you have a question, he has an answer. If you need to talk, he will listen. He welcomes everyone with open arms and acts as a “big brother” here at Mount Union.

Why Criminal Justice and Psychology?

I chose to double major in criminal justice and psychology because I have always had a profound interest in the brain as well as in the law. I aspire to become a lawyer and the major in criminal justice will help me to do just that. While the psychology major was more to fulfill my interest in the field as I find psychology to be fascinating and fun to learn about. As my ultimate career goal is to become a lawyer, UMU is preparing me by helping me set up a career path plan, with the help of the faculty, and by providing me with connections that can help me in my future endeavors.

Advice to Prospective Students

One obstacle I’ve had to overcome to get to this point is the fear I had of transferring. I was at my previous university for 2 years so I had become familiar with professors, professors had come familiar with me, I understood what was expected of me there, I knew where everything was, and I had made friends. I was scared to leave and having to start all over. Now that I have done it, it is safe to say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. I would say to step out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to go to school far from home. You will meet so many new people and you will learn so much about other cultures and societies.
